על הקורס

The need for quality assurance auditing has been recognized in, and is a requirement of, the ICH-Q7A API GMPs for manufacturers of active pharmaceutical ingredients; the US Quality System Regulations (21CFR820) for manufacturers of medical devices and equipment; the Good Clinical and Laboratory Practices regulations (GLPs and GCPs); and WHO, European, and American Pharmaceutical GMPs. Quality Assurance Auditing is a cornerstone of ISO 9000 Quality Systems, but now also plays a central role in FDA’s new 21st century GMP initiative. Without an effective audit program, compliance with quality standards and European and American GMPs is impossible.

Experience reveals that many internal company audits and many external supplier/contractor audits are less than effective in instigating change and waste much time and money. This course provides the rationale, strategies, techniques and tips for planning and performing effective quality assurance audits.

The course explores the politics, psychology and technical aspects of auditing, as well as the logistics, tools and recommended frequency of audits. The course evaluates the talents and personal characteristics required of a good auditor and compares them to those required of an excellent auditor.

The ultimate goal is to effect change. Determining operational deficiencies is only one aspect of an audit. Just as important is helping bring about compliance to company and legal standards. This course provides the tools required to make audits a positive experience for the auditor and for the auditee, and to ensure that the company gains maximum benefit.
